Cassie's Story

Cassie is a masters of social work student at Indiana University School of Social Work, a group facilitator for a transgender support group, and momma to three loving cats (Cinnamon, Fennel, and Dusty) and a dog that is a cutie (Pepper).

Cassie doesn't limit herself in her reading, but finds herself drawn to reading a good ole mystery book! She knows though that anything could be potentially a favorite read. She also enjoys books with a social justice slant to them, which makes her partial to books like "Push" by Sapphire and "The Handmaid's Tale" by Margaret Atwood.

She grew up reading comic books because of her father, so she continues to read them to this day. Her favorite publisher is by far DC Comics. Her favorite comic book superhero will always be Donna Troy!
